A Couple of Christmas Tags.....

Hello everyone: Besides making a few Christmas cards I'm also making some Christmas Tags, which will come in really handy when the Holidays roll in.


I love all the images on the Power Poppy set called Merry Littles which I usually use to complete the inside of my Holiday cards.
These tags are created with a retired SU stamp and die set called "That's the Tag", it has some really pretty images and dies to create the cutest little tags.

I'm playing along with the following challenges.

Little Succulents.....

Hello dear friends: I love Succulents, these hardy and beautiful little plants are easy to keep and simply adorable. 


The images and sentiment are from a Power Poppy set called "Sassy Succulents, the pattern paper from my stash.
I stamped them with Stazon black ink and colored them with my Prismacolor pencils, I embossed the panel with a Stampin' Up! embossing folder called "Subtle Dynamic Impressions".
***************************************************
This is how the INSIDE of my card looks like.



Both the sentiment and the little Succulent are from the Power Poppy set.

I'm playing along with the following challenges.

Black and White Daisy.....

Hello everyone: When someone asks me what is my favorite flower I honestly can't say, I love all flowers, from the regal Rose to the elegant Iris, the happy Daffodil and the always smiling Pansy, Violas and Violets, the "humble" Daisy is so beautiful too, simple and sweet, whether in all white or yellow, orange and pink, Daisies are lovely by themselves or as a complement to any bouquet.


These images are from a retired SU set called "Every Moment" (2010-2011)
I stamped them on a black card base with white ink and colored them with Prismacolor pencils, the sentiment is from Elizabeth Craft Designs.

The border is from a retired SU set called "Bordering Blooms", the sentiment is from a Power Poppy set called Azalea, the small Daisy from Penny Black.

I'm playing along with the following challenges.

A Second Set of Twofers.....




Hello everyone: Well, I'm happy to see there's still time to sneak in The Twofer Challenge with these cards, both created using an old 
Flourishes set called "Calla Lillies"


And here they are individually.


This is a Bridal Showe Card.
When I was growing up, my sweet maternal Grandma had huge pots of these flowers in the patio and little backyard of her house, these flowers were all white with the bright yellow center, I never saw Calla Lillies in any other color.
I colored these flowers with Prismacolor pencils, the sentiment is from a retired SU set called "Teeny, Tiny Wishes", the filigree die is from Mariane Designs.

The sentiment is from a retired SU set called "Hand-Penned Holidays", the border from SU "Delicate Details".
***********************************************
Here's my Twofer.


This is a Sympathy card.
Once again I used my Prismacolor pencils, I really love how the white pencil makes the card stock even whiter. I decided to use browns instead of black for my card base and pattern paper, I think it gives this card a softer look. 
The sentiment is very simple, stamped with gray Stazon ink.
I thought about using a few pearls but decided to let the flowers stand-alone.
